About this course:
Today, network administrators and managers need to provision multi-service networks, supporting VOIP and video, virtualization, and cloud services. The networks also need to be secure and segmented to limit attack surfaces.
Software defined networking (SDN) is the solution adopted by large organizations such as Google, Amazon, and most telco operators.
With SDN we can get the agility needed for easy network reconfiguration and adding new applications.
In addition, SDN allows micro segmentation for increased security and full control over quality of service (QoS).
Improved management software now also makes SDN available to smaller organizations.
